He might have made a solid Bond, but Pierce Brosnan needs some work as a gamer.
The former 007 was unwittingly lured into a game of GoldenEye for the Nintendo 64 during a "Tonight Show" visit with Jimmy Fallon, and unfortunately, the super spy didn’t look very super.
But it was pretty much a dream come true for Fallon. GoldenEye was a runaway hit on the N64 back in 1997 -- over 8 million copies were sold -- and remains the most beloved of Bond video games. The chance to play it with the, uh, "real" James Bond? Fallon is beside himself, almost losing it when he blurts out a perfectly evil “Good luck, Mr. Bond” before the match starts.
To his credit, the host does a nice job helping Brosnan get his bearings (“press blue to pick up the gun!”) before doing the unthinkable for a Bond villain: shooting James Bond a few times with a gun. No lasers? How droll.
Nothing can keep a good spy down, however. Brosnan's next film, "The November Man," casts him in the role of an ex-CIA operative forced back into action. It's due out August 27.
